Fixing/replacing corrugated wood that covers hoses when slide goes out

My motorhome has this small panel on the inside near the floor by the refrigerator. When the slide goes out there is a piece of corrugated wood that is supposed to slide out with it (like a roll top desk) to cover the hole. The wood piece doesn't slide very easily. I tried to mess with it and popped it out of the track.

Can I replace this with something better? Or what should I use to lubricate it so it slides more easily?

Right now I have it disconnected from the slide so I slide it over manually after outing the slide out so it doesn't get any
More damage

Old trick we used to use when the construction company was in business. "grease" the wood with a candle where it slides in or on the other pieces. Oil will penetrate the fiber/grain of the wood and turn it dark. Candle wax (have also used soap) will not. Used this trick a lot back when we fitted and hung doors before the days of pre-hung units. Screws went in a lot easier if you dragged the threads across the side of a candle or bar of soap.
